Some like it hot. And in Miami, we're bringin' the heat for real. When we're not quoting Marilyn Monroe movie titles and Will Smith lyrics, we're stuffing our faces with a rainbow of hot peppers thrown into every cuisine imaginable.

Plus, our beloved basketball team is named the Heat, so every restaurant tries to make the best Heat burger or sushi roll. Here are ten must-try dishes for when you have a lot of water and beer on hand. So spice up your life!

10. Lanbi Pike Nan Ji Sitwon at Tap Tap

We will ease you into this list, with a dish that looks deceivingly tame. A salad never conjures up images of mouths on fire, but the conch ceviche version ($10) at this Haitian hot spot packs a punch. The boldly diced peppers will come through in every bite and you will be grasping for each leaf of lettuce to provide a refreshing cut in the heat. If you want to be tougher ask for more scotch bonnet pepper and lime sauce.

9. White Hot Heat Roll at Suviche

The heat may no longer be on a roll (what, too soon?), but you can still get them in a sushi roll. SuViche blends sushi and ceviche into one hot Miami concept. Although, if spicy tuna and wasabi already get your eyes watering, you may not want to read on. This white hot heat roll ($12.50) has spicy tuna, tempura flakes, and cream cheese. It's topped with extra tuna, SuViche sauce, and sriracha. Sure, Philly brought cream cheese to the Philadelphia rolls long ago, but Miami brings so much heat we use that cream cheese like a glass of milk to kill the heat.
